I've written before about how I enjoy watching the large brown pelicans down here cruising on the air currents, watching for fish in the ocean below, and then dive bombing to catch a meal. After they strike the water, they bob back to the surface, tilt their heads backwards, and swallow their fish. Then these large birds flap their wide wings and take off from the water for another dive bombing mission.
Recently, some of the boys told me they saw a pelican nest on L'islet, the isolated peninsula that juts into the ocean between our two beaches, and which can only be accessed by scaling a rocky cliff. I knew I wanted to check out this unusual opportunity, so after school I followed them up the cliff and across the trail to the outer edge of this peninsula.
